    Reviews & endorsements

    '… whatever perspective one brings to [these essays] one is unlikely to be disappointed, such is the overall quality of the papers collected here.' International Affairs

    'Readers, or prospective readers, should not … be put off by the publishing date or labour under a misapprehension that everything changed on 11 September 2001 and, therefore, everything written before that is outdated or not applicable. One of the greatest strengths of this collection of essays is the historical perspective the authors bring to our understanding of 'great transformations.' The Journal of European Affairs
